The only main English political party in favour of E.U. membership is Labour.The LibDems will cave in to Cameron over a referendum, it is not one of their so called red lines,as long as they can join him in a new coalition.It is clear that Cameron will fail on his so called renegotiation with the EU as freedom of movement is clearly non negotiable.Cameron will whip up anti European hysteria to shift the blame onto Europe for his failure,a referendum is likely to see Britain leave.This will trigger both the Welsh ,the Scots to have their own referenda to leave the UK.They will both split off and rejoin the EU.For many anti UK anti EU English people this may be a satisfactory outcome.Not for some of us though.I think we are staring into the abyss.Vote anything other than Labour and you are risking the fragmentation of our United Kingdom and our European destiny.Please bear this in mind before you vote for those cuddly Greens and those unprincipled and weak Lib Dems.

If a major player like the UK votes to leave, then it will fall like a pack of cards, very quickly. The sweatys and the Welsh will not be so keen to leave the pound and dive into Europe.
The anti EU lobby is growing right across the continent and I think you will find that other countries will go down the referendum route soon as well if the Tories get in next Thursday.

Will it be so awful to find richer customers in a much, much larger market, ie the rest of the world, than continue trying to trade with bankrupt countries in Europe ? #complete red herring

I don't see why the two are mutually incompatible, old chap. Germany manages to be in the EU and to be a far greater exporter to China (and indeed to anywhere else) than we are. Likewise many northern european countries have healthier trade balances with the emerging world than we do.
And just before you label everyone as a bankrupt, we've got the highest consumer debt in Europe, and a pretty rotten balance of trade.

Anyone that refers to the Scots as the "sweatys"is an ignorant racist bigot.Anyone that thinks that Europe will collapse if Britain leaves, needs a brain transplant.So there you have it,"The Colonel"is a brain dead, racist bigot.A peanut has more sense.

Why would you say that if it isnít true, unless you're just churning a lie you read somewhere.

The EU would survive a Brexit.
The real crunch would be if France votes in Marine Le Pen's Front Nationale, which is not all that unlikely. There's no way the EU could survive one of the two main founder members leaving.
Incidentally she is funded by the Russians (through a Russian bank). Now I wonder why they would have a vested interest?
